Exciting News and Fun Times! 

Dear Friend,  
Wow, did we ever just have fun in Colorado and Illinois!  We flew out to CO to spend time with friends and for Wes to learn more pertaining to the new Executive Director job.  The week was mostly spent by Wes at the computer but we did get out one morning to enjoy nearby Rocky Mountain National Park with some snow.

Wes and our friend, Bob Mason, work on spreadsheets and images for the upcoming meeting of the Society of Animal Artists and the Annual Exhibition jury
We spent a total of 11 days on the trip split roughly in half between the two States.  In Chicago, Wes and Bob continued their work and took part in meetings, juries ... yes, it actually is fun when you're doing all this with friends!  Rachelle shared two blogs about our trip highlighting all the fun we had! (see below)

We're delighted to announce we received great news from the jury of the Society of Animal Artists!  Rachelle's painting, "Uncomfortably Menacing" and Wes' "Long-jawed Orb Weavers" were both selected for the 58th Annual Art and the Animal Exhibition that will be held at the brand new James Museum of Western and Wildlife Art in St. Petersburg, FL!
